The Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) has stated that Tamil Nadu is India’s national model for low-cost renewable electricity generation. It finds that the state has the capability to increase its solar capacity six-fold in the next 10 years.
Solar tops the installation list in 2017-18 with 264 MW of capacity commissioned to surpass wind for the period. Wind power remains leading renewable resource, as of January 31, 2018.
Larsen & Toubro Construction will install two 100 MW each solar power plants in the states of Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan.
India’s solar sector witnessed a huge growth in 2017. The country is close to 20 GW cumulative solar installation at the end of January 2018. Bridge to India has released several charts comparing renewable installations, tariff rates, and upcoming projects. The data shows India installed 8.5 GW utility-scale and 1.4 GW rooftop solar in 2017.
